Heavenly halibut, perfectly poached pear and a classy Camembert helped sweep BBC presenter and Alumna Angellica Bell (NHEHS 1993) to victory in the final of BBC One’s Celebrity Masterchef 2017. After weeks of culinary challenges she finished with a three course meal praised as ‘stunning’ and ‘joyous’ by judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
As a stark contrast alumna Dr Sara Kayat (NHEHS 2003) survived Bear Gryll’s Celebrity Island in the recent Channel 4 series with very little to eat! A practicing GP she became the physician to the other participants and it was her calm and strong composition, in the harshest of conditions, that helped get them all through. Although I’m not sure she will be returning to the Panama jungle any time soon.
